    Now I have it I hope I never have to use it

    Not often you buy something and hope you never have to use it. Smaller than I expected. The PELB arrived in 3 days and that is quicker than I get something from the other side of town

    Rescue Me PLB

    An excellent 'little' PLB. Smaller than I thought but still looks easy enough to use if required. Doesn't weigh anything or take up space. Would recommend other people looking for a small (the smallest) PLB.

    Product arrived within 3 days. Excellent tracking service.
